3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble
Vinnie’s Getaway 2.30 @ 10/1
Sword Of Fate 3.15 @ 9/2
Sirwilliamwallace 3.50 @ 7/1
Selected Lingfield – all weather – polytrack
Not a competitive card and the bookies likely to have long queues waiting for their winnings .
1.15 Savoy Brown has dropped his guard the last twice , but in far better races than this and previously was a winner over C&D off just a pound lower and under this jockey , in this apprentice handicap . So hard finding serious contenders in this , disappointing if the tip can’t nail this .
½ pt win Savoy Brown @ 3/1
1.45 Rock Girl wears the prolific purple silks of Amo Racing , which is certainly a syndicate going places . She was 2nd over C&D on debut and despite some smart stables in opposition , her experience is the key factor .
¼ pt win Rock Girl @ 5/2
2.20 Another very uncompetitive handicap and the short priced fav is the luckless Fair And Square, 4 seconds and a 3rd in his last 5 and cruelly shoved up 3 pounds for another close call last time . Well drawn for a prominent racer and Will Buick takes the ride . The increased mark is the only concern and I’m just having a dabble , despite the weak opposition .
¼ pt win Fair And Square @ 13/8
3.25 Despite Daphne May winning very well over C&D last time , giving them all a start and a beating , the rise in grade , 0 from 5 in this class , far more of a worry than the 4 pound hit . Wonder Elesmann stepped up considerably when tried at this trip for the first time with a clear win over C&D and will give stern opposition to the consistent Isola Rossa , who remains on a workable mark and runs this C&D very well.
¼ pt win Isola Rossa @ 9/4
4.00 The admirable Impeach , 3 front running wins over C&d this year , will give it everything again , but the hefty 5 pound hit and with other front runners in the field , makes the double unlikely . Touchwood is only 2 pounds higher for a cosy win at Kempton and is also effective here , and looks another market fancy to collect .
½ pt win Touchwood @ 5/4
4.35 The reliable and consistent pair of Lilkian and Alablaq , are closely matched and continue to run their races off their marks . They are very hard to split and likely to fight this out . Swiss Pride always arrives too late while Tyger Bay is still too high in the ratings . Fc time
¼ pt rev fc Lilkian – Alablaq
Selected Fakenham – good ground on this undulating and sharp track
2.30 Vinnie’s Getaway comes here on the back of a good 2nd at Plumpton when given a prominent ride and has run well over this C&D before off higher marks than today . Drying ground fine and could take some catching from the front in a modest race .
½ pt win Vinnie’s Gataway @ 10/1
3.05 Very much a match but the unlucky High Tech was still in contention when taking a last flight fall at Southwell at this trip last time in a handicap and cam have too much for the unconvincing Rathmacknee .
½ pt win High Tech @ 5/4
3.40 He’s rarely far away , has solid form over C&D and this could well be Justified’ day .
¼ pt win Justified @ 2/1
4.15 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Ayr – good ground on this flat and galloping track
2.40 On We go bounced back to form having his first run for Gillian Boanas , but drops in trip, races on quicker ground and is up 7 pounds . Isle Of Aron is rarely far away , but remains a maiden after 13 tries , but with no issues regarding trip, ground , mark and probably track . could be his day .
¼ pt win Isle Of Aron @ 7/2
3.15 The front running Sword Of Fate has dropped to a winning mark and drying ground certainly helps his cause in a winnable contest .
¼ pt win Sword Of Fate @ 9/2
3.50 Drying ground wont help Chanting Hill , Exit To Where or the Irish raiders in Hereditary Rule or imperial Sachin’s Sirwilliamwallace is versatile as far as the ground goes and runs this track very well and on this ground this longer trip should be within range . Bells Of Peterboro showed last time that good ground is no impediment , but does make his debut over fences , which has to be a negative .
½ pt win Sirwilliamwallace @ 7/1
4.25 Jessiemac is very much a regular over C&D and her mark remains workable and should just get away with the ground .
¼ pt win Jessiemac @ 4/1
5.32 Ardera Cross is another course regular and this front runner could handle the drying ground better than his rivals and has dropped to a manageable mark .
¼ pt win Ardera Cross @ 9/1
Selected Wetherby – good to firm on this slightly uphill and galloping track
5.40 Very much a match and as Fourth Time lucky has good experience on turf gets the nod over the closely matched Mountbatten , who’s only ever raced on synthetics .
¼ pt win Fourth Time Lucky @ 5/2
6.10 PREMIUM RACE
6.40 Tamaska won 4 times last season taking his winning mark from a lowly 52 to an Ok 66 and is only on 67 tonight . He has a length to find over Rum Runner as they were 2nd and 4th at Donny last time and the pound pull brings them closer and the tip was given too much to do also and his good win record gives him the nod .
¼ pt win Tamaska @ 9/4
7.10 Very tough to call between the luckless Arrange , runner up 4 times in 5 starts , but proven at the trip and ground up against the consistent Evaluation , who has a bit to prove on turf , 1 place in 5 tries , but has joined Keith Dalglish for £20,000 , so everything to play for .
7.40 PREMIUM RACE
8.10 Despite the big field , few come into this with high hopes and as Aoife’s Joy would do well getting involved from an adverse draw, looks between the reliable pair of Frog and Toad and Broctune red , but little value at shortish odds .
Selected Sedgefield – good to firm on this undulating and sharp track
5.15 Hard getting away from the top two in the market and at the trip, ground and weights , Check My Pulse should have the edge over Cool Country , and both run this tricky track well.
¼ pt win Check My Pulse @ 15/8
6.20 Creswell queen followed a smart win over C&D on good ground with a solid 2nd , again over C&D on soft ground off this 7 pound higher mark and clearly has claims again . Lake Shore Drive won well at Exeter last time, but this is a very different track and besides a stiff 7 pound hit also has to go 3 furlongs further . The lightly raced Howzat Hiris ran her best race ever last time out off this mark when running on well to be a close 3rd at Wetherby in the mud and if as effective on faster ground , likely to take a hand in the finish .
¼ pt ew Howzat Hiris @ 9/1
7.20 After her purple patch when she landed a front running hat-trick, Desray Girl is again getting some help from the handicapper after a couple of lesser efforts , but quick ground no help. Latino Fling is holding her form well and her career best run came at Musselburgh at this trip and ground , and is certainly not out of this off a 5 pound higher mark considering how well she won that day and the placed horses have done pretty well since , and she’s hit the frame in all 3 tries here . Pure Surf was 5 lengths behind but certainly has claims of revenge with a 7 pound pull but the nod goes to the lightly raced Guidedbythescience who was a close 4th here last time, looking the winner , but weakening late on , so off a 2 pound lower mark and a slightly shorter trip , is preferred . It’s likely to be happening far too quickly for the md loving and strong staying West Lawn under these conditions on this quick circuit .
¼ pt win Guidedbythescience @ 5/1
7.50 You’d be brave joining in on the plunge on 11 race maiden Ballycorr , who races with little zest and this marathon trip far from sure to help .Wake Up early hasn’t been with Richard Newland very long and struck first time out for the good doctor with a gritty success at Fakenham over an even longer trip and again ran well when beaten just 3 lengths over C&D last time, form which puts him in with a clear chance but drying ground is the issue , but in such a modest heat , is chanced .
¼ pt win Wake Up Early @ 4/1
